Orsha vs Smorgon
Belarus Pershaya Liga
Date: Saturday, 2 May 2020
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: City Stadium (Orsha)
The joy of starting the season with a win was short-lived for Orsha. They are fresh from a 2-1 loss to FC Slonim away from home. But it was not surprising as the win against Lida was actually lucky as they managed to convert from the spot. It was a close match where the visitors could not capitalize on the chances they made all evening.
Smorgon is third in the table at present. They started the season with a draw against Sputnik away from home. In their first home match of the season, they defeated Volna Pinsk with a final score of 2-0. They finished at the bottom last season and won the play-off to play yet another season in the first division. The closest they came to promotion was in 2014 when they finished 4th in the table.
Orsha vs Smorgon: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Orsha is on a 4 match unbeaten run against this opposition.
- They have won both their last meetings against Smorgon.
- Both sides scored in 3 of the last 5 head to head meetings.
- Almost 77% of their matches finished with over 2.5 goals in total.
Orsha vs Smorgon: Prediction
This could be a close match considering Orsha are unbeaten in 4 matches against this opposition. But their home record is a headache for the coach and fans. The win against Lida came after a 6 match winless run in front of their home crowd. Adding salt to the wounds is the defensive history in that period. They have conceded 2 or more goals in 6 of their last 10 home games.
Smorgon has not lost yet but they are not good on the road themselves. They failed to get a win in any of their last 5 traveling games. But they have enough power to put a goal past the home keeper. So I am backing the match to be a draw with both sides getting goals.
